I have posted this in 1 other thread besides the original. This will be the last thread I post it in, I would like to share it so that others can voice their opinion and we can continue to have feedback about the current situation:
While I know a lot of people might disagree with me I feel the majority of what I speak is true for the for a certain sect of players, specifically VIP10-16 players that were spending $20-200 a month on this game before Gree took over.
Since then my spending had decreased to about $100 over 3 months up until Christmas time. After seeing the direction the game was heading I started to spend as little as i possibly could while still maintaining top 1% in every contest, as I was growing tired of waiting for change and did not want to show support to what Gree and the developers were giving in return.
Despite this they still made 2 million alone in just the month of December 2016. Then we find out that the new rune system doesn't even have an eta and those were more false promises. Basically meaning don't expect it for 3-6+ months- if at all.
This was the last straw for me and is when I stopped spending completely other than $2.99 monthly. My wife and I are both VIP14 and spent/d the same amount monthly.
This course now repeats itself with the promises of a new difficulty to challenges/mountains with patch 2.1.0. We did not receive those today, Although we have been told that they can be turned on quickly when it is time.-
I am just so sick of watching this game I love be gutted of any new content and every single aspect start to fall behind while its players are being forced harder and harder into spending, only to find out these resources that are now harder to obtain are also more expensive to buy(amounts/values of deals have been in decline for past 2-3 months)and are all required for the same thing.
They continue to lead us on with false hopes and promises, only to continue to pull the ol' bait and switch on us every time.
Developers know which items are bottle necked and are hard for us to obtain, yet they still put them in these legendary quests as though we wont notice? I agree that legendary quests should be difficult and timely to complete but some of these quests will take 30-90 days, if not longer and that is assuming you spend 0 tokens that entire time, for some players these certain legendary quests will be more or less impossible to complete.
There are better ways of going about delaying your players from earning a skills and completing content too fast, this is not the right way, Forcing them to choose between promoting a current hero or working on a legendary quest is extremely frustrating. How many times does this continue to happen before we have to believe it is intentional?
I guess I bitch here in hopes that maybe they will hear my feedback and things will change. Just maybe if i post enough, and enough people see my posts and agree with me then maybe things will change and I won't have to watch this game and the people i spend my time with in it dissipate before my eyes.
While i know and understand this is just a game I still have invested time(over 454 days)and money into this game and I don't want to just quit playing. So venting(i try not to go too overboard) and complaining on here is only the really medium or outlet I have to voice my opinion about what is happening in the game. I wouldn't dare send a ticket into the abyss that is CS(customer service) about any of this.
Hopefully by me posting on here otherwise will be willing to voice their disdain as well. It has definitely been proven that developers at least some what listen to the feedback we give on the forums. As much as I want to give up- I want to keep trying...
